The new Remington Model 783 is all about reliability and consistent accuracy. It features a performance-enhancing stock design with a dual-pillar bedding platform that free-floats the barrel to enhance shot-to-shot consistency. Its magnum-contour barrel is precision button-rifled to deliver tight groups.
The Model 783 (MSRP: $451.10) is equipped with a crisp, new Cross-Fire trigger system that shooters can adjust to their preference. Other features include a cylindrical receiver with minimum sized ejection port, more receiver mass for rigidity and accuracy, a barrel nut system to attach the receiver to the barrel, a detachable box magazine, minimum head space for greater accuracy, and dual opposing locking lugs with a 90-degree bolt throw.
The Model 783’s receiver is similar to the Model 700, but little metal was designed out of the receiver to ensure it’s as rigid as possible, according to Eric Lundgren, an assistant product manager. The stock is mostly nylon so it’s rigid and consistent, and includes two aluminum pillars that create a fully free-floated barrel.
As of early 2013, the Model 783 was available in .308 Winchester, .30-06 Springfield, .270 Winchester and 7mm Remington Magnum. It will be available in up to 12 more calibers by year’s end, from .223 Remington to .300 Winchester Magnum. Contact (800) 243-9700, www.remington.com.
